    I'm there Saturday! Maybe Sunday too if the rain isn't as bad as they say, but deff Saturday. The wife and I need to pick up our season passes and want to make at least a half day of it. She's a newer skiier so isn't super fast/good, but will go down most trails. If you are there Saturday I'd be happy to meet up and do a few rides.

    After looking at the weather I think Saturday is our day too. We're able to get down most blues and some blacks but I'm still relatively new to skiing (been a snowboarder my whole life and just picked up telemark a few years ago) so I still prefer groomers. Happy to make some runs if we can manage to connect while we're there.

    Cool, I think we would be well matched, I only venture into the woods when my cousin goads me on and makes me do trails I'm not comfortable with :rofl: But that's what the helmet is for I suppose

    I just checked the website and they had 8 trails last night and only 7 this morning!! Hoping they open up a couple more or it won't be a super long day. I don't feel bad only going for a few hours now that I have a pass though.

    Going to groom the xc trails again this morning before I head out. Parents said the skiing was great yesterday on them, hopefully between now and Tuesday when it cools down they don't get destroyed.

    @BadDNA only one way down the hill reallyand wife isn’t comfortable with the bottom half. We won’t be here long today unfortunately. It’s great skiing tho!!

    Yeah I do a loop or two with the snowmobile and then have a drag I tow behind to leave some cord down! Was a beautiful morning to be out. Berk east is great too, sun rose over the mountain as I rode the lift up for the first run! Stinks my wife is such a noob!!

    @DrFunker realize
    You meant tracks for skis I have an attachment to do that but my parents don’t like it. It’s drives my XC skiing brother crazy.

    It really is perfect out there, saw a few people pulled over on rt 2 taking photos of the river. I ended up getting some xc skiing in and it was great. Fast and well packed, but still soft enough to control yourself on a downhill.

    Was a nice day but the limited options got boring quickly. We did a half dozen runs and packed it in.

    Yeah I did 3-4 total before we left. We need another half foot or more to get the trails all opened it seems.

    We've both got some back country gear we want to get some real use out of, happy to come out and give it a go. The local golf courses are fun but we don't get enough snow down here for more than a couple of days a season.

    I have a few places I like to go to when the conditions are right. Let's get a solid base down and then we can connect.
